the marines do, that the army, navy, and air force cannot do? if your answer is amphibious assaults, include a couple amphibious assault-trained battalions or brigade's within each combat division or add another week to the army basic training for amphibious assault. just think about the duplication that could be eliminated with this concept. if all those that are in the defense industry now, as they profess that our future wars will be more of a technology base, this seems appropriate. out of the box, and popular, yes. complicated and hard to do, but that is my suggestion. host: from the "washington times" this morning -- and this is the wall street journal -- finally, we want to take this call from don in michigan. caller: good morning. about the fiscal cliff, i think we should go over the cliff and then start from there. freedom is not free. we have forced to pay for -- wars to pay for. we have to pay bills. god bless america and c-span. everybody have a great day. host: thank you. we have two guests. we will continue looking at the so called "fiscal cliff" negotiations with mary agnes ca

evolved last march, but this is one of the most senior. could it be a turning point? joining us now, navy captain chuck nash. thanks for being with us. how significant is this defection? >> well, i think it just shows that the tower's crumbling around assad, and it's certainly not good for him, and it's going to make those who are supporting him question his staying power. and it looks, at least from this and some of the efforts that the rebels are making, that his days truly are numbered. patti ann: so what would that mean for the future of syria? >> well, it depends on, first off, how does this end? that's the big question. and who makes it end? he's going to have to make the calculation as did moammar gadhafi of if he makes a deal with someone, is it something that could be honored in the future, or is he going to make a deal, give up his position -- and his position right now are two things. he's got chemical weapons and other secrets that he knows because he's been dealing with the iranians, and the third thing is to stop the killing. so if he makes a deal, it's to, it's to deal with
